:iconnocommissions: :iconnopointcommissions: :iconnorequests:

I AM THE IDEA FACTORY WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN. I COME UP WITH THE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS, AND BUY COMMISSIONS ACCORDINGLY. REQUESTS ARE TREATED LIKE SUGGESTIONS, AND ARE NOT CONSIDERED PRIORITY. IF I LIKE THE IDEA, I'LL GET TO IT WHEN I GET TO IT.

:icondontask4pts1::icondontask4pts2::icondontask4pts3::icondontask4pts4::icondontask4pts5::icondontask4pts6::icondontask4pts7:

ALL POINT REQUESTS WILL BE IGNORED. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE REPORTED AND BLOCKED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I DONATE POINTS WHENEVER AND TO WHOMEVER I SEE FIT. IF YOU HAVE TO ASK, THE ANSWER IS "NO."

***HERE COMES THE HERO...

TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM DESTRUCTION...

THIS IS R-LEGEND!***

Now that that's out of the way, a little intro. I'm a highly creative individual who can be inspired by almost anything at anytime. Cosplay is my extravagent hobby. Love cosplaying and love taking cosplay photos. I'm always looking for the perfect shot. It's the way I appreciate and remember everything that I've liked over the years. I have over 80 cosplays that I've worn and still come up with even more ideas to wear in the future. I travel to pretty much any convention or gathering I feel like going to in the U. S. You never know when or where I'll show up next.

I'm also into sports, video games, TV shows and action movies too.

Oh yeah, AND I'M AWESOME!

Those are the basics. Want more? OK.

Some of you know me from anime, gaming and comic conventions. Some of you know me from cosplay gatherings. Some of you know me as that guy from California who is "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason." Others as "that mysterious cosplayer on YouTube that shows up in every convention video or CMV." And some of you just Watch me at random. But really, who is this guy? Well I'll tell you...

Why yes, I am "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason."

I'm the Valor Form you eat lunch with.

I'm the Wisdom Form you take trickshots with.

I'm the Master Form you walk around Chicago with.

I'm the Final Form you do epic battle with.

No, I'm Me, And You're Toast!

I have 7 Days.

I'm the Star Blitzball Player for the Zanarkand Abes.

I'm working for "Strife Delivery Service."

I'm the Vocaloid from the Steel City, waving that Terrible Towel!

I'm a Viking or a Bengal, depending on who you ask. Dattebayo.

I'm Sora's best friend, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm Ven's dark side, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm the Gamer with the Keyblade, riding your Disneyland rides.

Mine is the drill that points to the heavens!

I'm an avenger whose here to revive my clan.

I'm the 6th Hokage of your Leaf Village.

I'm the Sage beating down your Akatsuki.

I'm the Sage of your Prom Gathering.

I'm the Hero of Time that saves your kingdom.

I'm the Yellow Turbaned peasant leading your rebellion.

I'm the WWE Champion and the leader of Legacy.

YOU CAN'T SEE ME.

I'm going to find The One.

I'm not afraid of the darkness.

I'm Tiger Woods. I don't lose the game.

Where on Earth am I now?

Well Sora, it looks like my summer vacation's over.

I'm the Perfect Soldier, the Wing to your Gundam.

I'm #17.

I'm the Agent hunting down...Mr. Anderson.

I'm still the hyperactive ninja you know and love, only a little older and a little wiser.

Blue Is The Colour,
Cosplay Is The Game.
We're All Together,
And Winning Is My Aim.
So Cheer Me On Through The Sun And Rain,
'Cos J. RYOGA Is My Name.

Yeah, I'm that guy. Any questions?

My Grid Has Been Shattered

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 25, 2018, 6:42 PM
A fandom pilgrimage of the highest order!!! With Summer winding down, here's what's going on in my world:


POWER MORPHICON 2018

Looking For Pics Of My Cosplays:
*PARZIVAL from Ready Player One
*CASUAL VANITAS from Kingdom Hearts
*WHITE RANGER HOODIE RYOGA from Ranma 1/2

My second year at the con, and this time I was a bit more prepared. LOVED the fact that it moved to my old stomping grounds in Anaheim. First things first, a Fandom Pilgrimage of the highest order to a legendary sci-fi filming spot!! The con organized about 100 people to go on a trip to Simi Valley to the location of the Power Rangers Command Center! But the trip ALMOST DIDN'T HAPPEN. Got to the convention center early on Thursday morning only to find out THERE WERE NO BUSES! The bus company TOTALLY FLAKED on us! Morphicon staff had to scramble to make calls and get a second bus company to come through two hours later. Got on the first bus that left and lucky I did because who was waiting for us when we finally got there? AUSTIN ST. JOHN, the ORIGINAL RED RANGER!! You know how every cast member has their own booth for photos and autographs? Well Austin St. John's booth was THE FRONT DOOR OF THE COMMAND CENTER. XD He signed autographs, took photos/videos morphing, gave us his itinerary for the next three months, and even hyped ArtOfTran's KING TYRANNO artwork (while wearing a King Tyranno t-shirt of course.) While this was going on I took Parzival photos with Civilian Ranger cosplayers. My battery was running low on my cellphone but I found outlets on the outer wall, so yes I WAS LITERALLY GETTING POWER FROM THE COMMAND CENTER!!! XD And of course "Reverend" St. John had to get on his soapbox and give a general "sermon" before he had to take off...eventually... (right before the second bus arrived, he was still there when our first bus left.)

The convention itself took place entirely in the new North Hall of the Anaheim Convention Center, with the show floor consisting of booths for pretty much every Power Ranger actor, Sentai actor, toy vendor and display case that could fit, plus a big panel room in the back that was ALWAYS full. Most Rangers brought their helmets with them so you knew who they were. Some had little extra gimmicks at their booths like big signs and posters, or showing up in full costume (Melody Perkins/Astronema) or partial costume (Kate Sheldon/Nadira from Time Force rocking the neon pink hair and Phillip Andrew/Wild Force Lunar Wolf Ranger in his "Howling Wolf" jacket from the series.) Friday's big highlights were getting photos with Adam Tuominen (Ninja Storm Crimson Ranger) and the VIP Meet and Greet in the evening where cast and crew from all the past seasons dropped by the North Hall Balcony to eat, drink and generally hold court. Got to shake hands and hear stories from SO many different Rangers. Biggest shock was when Kevin Duhaney (Dino Thunder Blue Ranger) walked right by me (literally dropped everything to shake his hand) and Brennan Mejia (Dino Charge Red Ranger) showed up late and was literally going around shaking other Rangers' hands like a legit fan. BULK & SKULL (the comedy relief bully duo from Mighty Morphin) ruled this event, having the biggest crowds around them as they told the funniest stories. And let it be known that Jack Guzman (Wild Force Black Ranger) is The Hispanic Dad That Everyone Needs.

Honestly, after Friday night's Meet-and-Greet, it was like...the con could have ended Saturday morning and I would have been good. Took me all morning just to process everything from the night before. Heck, I'm still processing it now.

Saturday's big highlights were the priority of getting photos with Dan Southworth (Time Force Quantum Ranger), the Forever Red Panel where Black Nerd Comedy/Andre got MULTIPLE shout-outs and the SHATTERED GRID LIVE COMIC READING where they recapped the latest crossover event with actual Rangers reading the lines. Jason Faunt (Time Force Red Ranger) had to fill in for Jason David Frank as Tommy/Lord Drakkon. This is where we got to hear the legit ZORDON and RITA REPULSA voices LIVE. Gave me chills. Oh yes, my grid was officially shattered.

Sunday was the lightning round with cosplay photos. There's a bunch of people that I missed, but I'll catch them at another event or the next Morphicon in 2020. Overall I got what I wanted out of this con (Command Center, Lord Drakkon throne photos, Adam Tuominen and Dan Southworth.) Despite some hiccups and early adversity, it was definitely worth it.


-----------------------------------------

WELCOME TO ALL MY NEW WATCHERS! Cosplay is my extravagent hobby. Love cosplaying and love taking cosplay photos. I'm always looking for the perfect shot. It's the way I appreciate and remember everything that I've liked over the years. I have over 80 cosplays now and even more ideas on the way. I'm a highly creative individual. I can be inspired by almost anything at anytime. I travel to pretty much any convention or gathering I feel like going to in the U. S. You never know when or where I'll show up next.

WHAT EXACTLY IS "R-LEGEND?"

People have realized that I'm about more than just cosplay and ask "Why is Ryoga fighting all these random people?" So here's a little bit of info about some of the artworks I commission for the "R-LEGEND" section of my gallery:

R-LEGEND is the story of J. Ryoga, a young man who founds a martial arts/military/superhero organization destined to wage war against the forces of evil in the universe. Through the course of his life, he encounters many friends, battles countless enemies, and even raises a family to carry on once his part in the story ends. After much consideration and debate, "RWO" itself is an acronym for an ancient alien phrase loosely meaning "Army of Light." Originally, Ranma 1/2 characters were the main focus of the story, but over time it grew into what can only be described as the "ultimate crossover action fanfic." So in addition to cosplay photos and random character art, I also upload images and artwork from the "R-Legend" story in the "R-Legend" folder of my gallery. Some characters you may recognize, and others you may need to Google to learn more about.

R-LEGEND was originally an online club I started back in college. First, we were an America Online chatroom roleplay group called "RWO," then we grew to become an online club devoted to creating a massive crossover fanfiction story based on various video games, anime, cartoons, comics, sci-fi series, fantasy series, spontaneous events that took place in AOL chatrooms, and the creative ideas that my friends have pitched to me over the years. The group's name changed from "RWO" to "R-Legend" because in essence, the story is "our legend."

What is all this leading to? I'm not at liberty to go into too many details right now but stay tuned.

Things are becoming clearer over time.

GROUP INVITATIONS
A quick reminder that in most cases I WILL ONLY ACCEPT INVITATIONS TO GROUPS WITH 100 MEMBERS OR MORE. There are very rare exceptions, but for the most part I want to expose my gallery to the widest audience possible, and can't do that by joining groups that are tiny, fly-by-night, or here-today-gone-tomorrow. Gotta prove that you're for real, and that you're in it for the long haul.
